Winter “Movies on the Wall”: Here’s the lineup!


Earlier this month, you had the chance to suggest what you’d like to see at the first-ever Movies on the Wall Winter Series in The Junction, an indoor spinoff of the popular outdoor summertime series. Now, Lora Lewis of Hotwire Coffee (WSB sponsor) sends word of the “winners”: First, at 7 pm March 4, it’s “The Mummy” – here’s the trailer:

(Lora says they’re planning a bathroom-tissue mummy-wrapping contest to go with that one!) At 7 pm March 11, it’s the original “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory,” where the wacky candymaker was portrayed by Gene Wilder:

Then, mark your calendar for 7 pm March 18, for “Napoleon Dynamite“:

All movies are free at the new activity center of West Seattle Christian Church in The Junction (which opens the center’s doors to the public for an open house tomorrow, 2-4 pm, by the way) – Lora promises, “All the fun of the outdoor summer series including concessions, cupcakes, charity raffles other great community activities. Bring your blankets and chairs and join us for the Movies on the Wall Winter Series.” (Doors will open at 5:30 pm with the movies at 7) WSB is proud to be among the sponsors; we hope to see you there!

    All those movies except Willy Wonka are Lame.

    I’m sorry but that’s how I feel.

    Willy Wonka is Lame but the others are cool.
    And wow, a Mormon-made movie (Napoleon) being screened at a Christian church. I guess West Seattlites are all Unitarians at heart.

    Thank you West Seattle Christian and the sponsors from the outdoor movies for the winter shows.

    I don’t think you can take an entire family out to the movies for under $50.00. Thanks for bringing us another FREE community event. We’ll be there for sure.

    I don’t know why on earth you would call Napoleon Dynamite a “mormon-made” movie and be surprised that a christian church is showing it. So a couple of the filmmakers happen to be LDS. its not like it has mormon-values, characters, or principles being promoted through the film. And its not like you would call it an “African-American-made” film if the filmmakers happened to be Black. West Seattlites don’t have to be Unitarians to show a cute funny film, no matter what the religious persuasions of the filmmakers!

Sorry, comment time is over.
